Medical aids

Do you need support tights, or do you rely on a blood sugar monitor? Do a walker or incontinence supplies make your everyday life easier? Medical aids are products that you use or that are used on you by someone else. This page will tell you how you can be sure you're getting good service with the aids you use, and what costs your health insurance will cover.

Contribution from CSS Insurance

Medical aids which feature on the aids and appliances list (known as the MiGeL) issued by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) are paid for under basic insurance less the deductible and retention fee – providing the products have been prescribed by a doctor. The MiGeL also defines the maximum contribution that may be paid. If this is exceeded, you must meet that share of the costs that is above the limit. Aids a medical practitioner (hospital or nursing home staff, nurse, doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, etc.) uses on you are included in the cost of the treatment.

Find a suitable medical aids supplier

When your doctor is issuing your prescription, feel free to let them know that you are insured with CSS, and would like to get your aids from one of our partners. The aids supplied by these partners combine the highest quality standards with attractive prices.

Special cases: hearing aids and orthopaedic shoes

Hearing aids and orthopaedic shoes are covered under basic insurance only if certain conditions are met. For example, when the basic medical conditions of Federal Disability Insurance (DI) or Old-Age and Survivors' Insurance (OASI) are met, but the person does not fulfil the insurance requirements and is thus ineligible for benefits under the relevant social insurance plan.
